Collectibles maker Eaglemoss is headed to the Star Trek Las Vegas con, which kicks off Wednesday, where they will be offering up products for fans at special prices as well as debuting a new limited edition ship model from Star Trek: Discovery.
Press release from Eaglemoss
EAGLEMOSS BEAMS INTO STAR TREK LAS VEGAS WITH NEW SHIPS, NEW BUSTS
AND A LIMITED EDITION DEBUT!
Latest from All the Collections including Star Trek Starships, Discovery Starships,
XL Editions and the U.S.S. Glenn Variant
Celebrating the tremendous success of Season 1 of Star Trek: Discovery and gearing up for the launch of Season 2, Eaglemoss will unveil and offer for sale for the first time anywhere the limited edition U.S.S. Glenn NCC-1030 variant from the Star Trek: Discovery Official Starships Collection. The sister ship to the Crossfield-class U.S.S. Discovery NCC-1031, the Glenn was destroyed by Captain Lorca early in the series after a disastrous test of the experimental spore drive.
Like all ships in the collection, this larger scale model is made of die-cast metal and ABS materials, then hand painted with reference to the actual CG models used in production. Strictly limited to only 500 ships worldwide, each comes with a collector’s magazine, display stand and numbered certificate of authenticity.
Two additional and soon-to-be released ships from the collection will also be on display – the U.S.S. Europa NCC-1648 and one of the few Vulcan designs seen in the series so far, the Vulcan Cruiser.
Eaglemoss’ popular line of Star Trek Starships XL Editions continues to grow and fans at the event will be among the first to get their hands on the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-A and the U.S.S. Defiant NX- 74205, Starfleet’s first true warship. On display, but not yet available for purchase, will be the next pair of XL Editions due to be released in Q4 of 2018 – the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-B, as seen in Star Trek: Generations, and the Miranda-class U.S.S. Reliant.
Visitors will also get a first look at two new Bonus ships from the original Star Trek: The Official Starships Collection – Rick Sternbach’s U.S.S. Voyager Concept (the original, but unused design of the ship) and the Klingon Bird-of-Prey (Landing Position).
Rounding out Eaglemoss’ Star Trek presence in Las Vegas will be the all-new line of Official Star Trek Collector’s Busts. This eagerly anticipated collection features the iconic captains of Starfleet and other memorable characters from over 50 years of Star Trek TV and movie history, capturing them in impressive detail with highly accurate likenesses, uniforms and props. These hand-painted polyresin busts are 4.5 to 6” tall, come complete with a fact-filled magazine, and form an essential addition to any Star Trek collection. On display in Las Vegas will be four fan favorites – Captain James T. Kirk, Science Officer Spock, Lt. Commander Worf and Lt. Commander Data.

The Glen is the first trek ship I would buy. It actually looks real and not cartoony like those old 90’s trek ships.
Actually, it’s the Crossfield-class ships that spin like the Tasmanian Devil. (That’s a cartoon character from the olden times.)
And that’s a wrap on this thread.
What’s the point of a saucer if it doesn’t do something? I know you’re stuck in the old ways, but come on.
According to Trek lore, the “point” of the saucer was to host the bridge, crew quarters, sickbay, briefing room, and associated venues. It was not to spin on its axis like some whirling dervish, thus undermining all engineering logic and the ship’s sense of scale. Do you realize how much energy it would take to rotate those hull plates independently of the rest of the ship, not to mention how prone such a system would be to breakdown and failure?
I mean, I know it’s your role to defend every single aspect of Discovery regardless of merit (just as it is for others to bash it), but come on.
Do you realize how much energy it takes to warp space and time? The ship doesn’t run on Duracell batteries. And you’re worried about some spinning?🤔
Technically, the saucer doesn’t spin. The uppermost hull plates spin independently of the rest of the saucer. That’s not to say that it still doesn’t make much sense. The ship spinning? Sure, I’ll buy that. Not sure why the hull plates need to spin around like a record though.
FYI, I like Discovery. I just happen to think that this design choice makes no sense. Same for virtually all the Klingon ship designs.
I’m not a big fan of the Klingon ships either, however, it was to show that the Empire was not unified so each house had their own designs.
Regardless, most of them looked odd.
Gotta hand it to Eaglemoss for making such an ambitious line of models. And the Glenn is a great limited edition version, I so so so wantt!
Still think the Crossfield class is a disgusting design and ruins Starfleet’s otherwise clean and smooth lines with hard shapes and bad proportions. That shot of the Ent from Disco’s ‘neck’ in the season 2 trailer shows just how boxy and unsexy the Disco is by comparison.
The Crossfield class was designed and built around an experimental propulsion system. It stands to reason they would be a unique design. Their appearance is at least explainable in universe. But from a purely aesthetic standpoint, I’m inclined to agree with you. Basically just pizza cutters stuck on an arrowhead.
You can buy an Enterprise pizza cutter online. Just google it.
Yes, a Enterprise pizza cutter and even a Enterprise cutting board are available.
Which highlights how un-orignal the design of the Discovery really is. Just flatten out the Big E, and call it a new class of starship.
The saucer is there to tell the viewers that’s its a Starfleet ship. It’s a visual shorthand. Now your saying it’s un-original to use a saucer. If the Discovery didn’t have a saucer people here would be jumping up and down with hate.
It can best be viewed as an experimental prototype (it should have been designated NX-1031, not NCC). Aside from all that, it’s far from graceful and doesn’t look great from a number of different angles.
It will be interesting to see how Disco does over the next few years. If it goes on a seven year run plus movies, then some of these models may go on to be very valuable. If it wraps up in three-four years, who knows. No matter what, they look pretty cool and they won’t cost $9K!!
They don’t need to do movies.
How can Eaglemoss get Reliant right and muck up the Enterprise-A so badly?!?
They must have different teams do each release. It is frustrating,the inconsistency!
Okay, I’ll bite. What’s wrong with the “A”? Looks pretty good from here.
Perhaps the worst thing is that the bridge module is all wrong. Hard to put into words but there are videos referring to it. It’s too rounded. Compare it to the bridge module on the Reliant. Should look like that.
Not to mention the super-sized text on the saucer edge, nacelles, and behind the bridge module.
Yeah, that too!
I might consider buying the Glenn if Eaglemoss corrects the bridge window from what it is (two square windows) on the Discovery.
That is one fancy pizza cutter.
I subscribe to the Discovery collection and as it’s now going to be incomplete I might as well cancel.
You might check eBay. I sometimes buy event exclusive items there.
Same. I’m a subscriber and the Glenn likely being stupidly expensive on the secondary market only makes me want to drop the pricey subscription.
I am interested in the Europa (only shop on DSC that actually looks like a Starfleet ship) and the Voyager prototype. Where’s my wallet?
The only two ship models I don’t like are the Discovery/Glenn and Defiant.
The Discovery design is never going to warm up to me, it’s just horrible.
Defiant looks like an old style flip phone at best, at worse a poorly designed sex toy.
